Last time we have discussed Virtual Reality as another dimension and today we want to talk about ways how to get into this wonderland. Well, it turns out that it’s not so hard after all!  There is the whole world dedicated to that topic, but we won’t bore you with a long list of all VR devices.  Let’s hold this thought and learn  more about the top VR devices on the market these days.

Here we have two  groups  of  VR devices such us Tethered and Mobile. The first group is all about Sony PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift.

The fall of 2016 was occupied by Sony PlayStation VR. With this device, you don’t need a pricey gaming PC as an intermediary. Instead, it works with the PlayStation 4 console that you might already own.

Next going to be  HTC Vive, is the only VR system that tracks your movements.  It has a package that includes a headset, two motion controllers, and two base stations, all these allows you to move around and have a different kind of fun.

Along with HTC Vive comes  Oculus Rift, what has become synonymous with VR. It offers a good price and very compelling mid-range virtual reality option. But,  as with the HTC Vive,  you’ll need a pretty powerful PC to use the Rift.

The second group dedicated to Mobile.

Samsung Gear VR one of the most accessible VR systems for today. Everything you need to start to use it is compatible Samsung Galaxy smartphone, what you may have already. Also, Samsung collaborated with Oculus to build the Gear’s software ecosystem, which already has a handful of games and apps, including virtual theaters for watching Netflix and other streaming video services.

One more interesting device is Google Daydream View. How is it work? You put your phone in a headset which has a couple of lenses that separate the screen into two images and that you will use it as a display. It’s not pricey, portable and enough comfortable device.

It’s only top of the iceberg in VR devices world! We will keep you updated about new coming VR pieces. And for now, we are looking forward to introduce our upcoming post about Virtual Reality Testing.
